October is my favorite month of the year! The weather is pretty much perfect here in Virginia Beach. We do get those cool Fall days but there are also some days that are still in the 80’s! I believe pumpkin is everyone’s favorite fall flavor including the dogs! Pumpkin dog treats are really easy to make and are healthy for your pup! I made this frozen dog treat to stay cool on those hot Fall days.

- 1 cup non-fat plain frozen yogurt
- 1/2 cup canned pure pumpkin
- 1/4 cup water
- 15 minutes + freeze time
Cost and Tools Required
This project cost me $1! I already had the ingredients and bought the pumpkin ice cube tray at the Dollar Tree.
Step by Step Instructions
Mix the yogurt, pumpkin, and water together. You can add more water to help make the mixture “runny” so that it’s easier to fill the ice cube tray.
Pour the mixture into your pumpkin shaped ice cube tray (s).
TIP: I used a cake decorating tip as a funnel to make sure I got the mixture into the tray without spillage.
Freeze for about 3-4 hours or overnight.
The pumpkin treats should look something like this when they are done:
Once the treats are completely frozen, pop them out and serve! Happy Howl-O-Ween!
